I wanted something spring-y looking for Easter and thought this would be a good choice.
I mixed up all the dry ingredients the night before so it was ready to go and saved time.
It turned out really well. 🙂 Recipe at end of post.
Just to let y’all know…we’re in the middle of a small remodel so my kitchen time is going to be limited for a few days. The blog will probably be a little boring too.
3 cups (375g) Flour (I used Cup4Cup)
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1 1/2 cup Sugar
1 (3 oz) package Strawberry Jello
2 sticks soft Butter
2 tsp Vanilla
1 1/2 cup Buttermilk
10 oz frozen and thawed Strawberries
2 boxes Powdered Sugar
2 sticks of Butter
2 boxes Cream Cheese
Preheat oven to 350*.
Put flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar and Jello to a large mixing bowl.
Add butter, buttermilk, eggs, vanilla and strawberries.
Mix on med – high for 2 minutes.
Divide into 2 – 3 pans.
Bake for 20 – 30 minutes. Know your oven. 🙂
Make the icing while the cake is baking.
I used my favorite icing…1 part each…stick of butter / box of cream cheese / box of powdered sugar…multiplied by 2. 1 of each would have been too little and 2 of each was a little too much so you might want to do 1 1/2 of each. I just had no desire to measure out halves of everything. 😉
Let cake completely cool and then ice.
